Not a favourite by all means, but I still like it very much. The story is on the weak side somewhat, but the high energy, glitzy glamour and festival atmosphere more than make it up. The animation is colourful and fluid, though I think Cock o'the Walk could do with a restoration so that the colours look more vivid. The music is what enhances the atmosphere by how energetic and dynamic it is, while of the gags and scenes the clever one at the end and the colourful poultry dance parodying Busby Berkeley are the highlights. There have been more memorable characters before, but they are still colourful and likable here.
Overall, a very nice cartoon, though there were I think better before and since. 9/10 Bethany Cox
